Cooking Class: Cooking With Mexican Meats and Cheeses

Meat and cheese come together in a way you’ve never tasted in this hands-on cooking class by Chef Jonathan. While you won't be making any kind of a cheese board, you will discover how to use cheeses and meats to create an array of classic Mexican cuisines from scratch. 

To get your taste buds warmed up, make a fresh shrimp ceviche with avocado, jalapeños, and lime. Next, you’ll hand-craft tortillas to make rib-eye tacos assembled with creamy cotija cheese and roasted corn. For the side, whip up a decadent queso fundido packed with spicy chorizo and jalapeños. Finish on a sweet note with Mexican bread pudding made with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and dried fruit.
